Lynchian Mary Worth insanity

A live-action version of a month's worth of Mary Worth strips, shot using the actual "camera angles" of the original strips. (If you want to subject yourself to the rest of the episodes, they're here. For some reason I had to watch all of them.)

Maybe this would make more sense if I had ever seen this strip, but jesus fuck is this shit weird...

    I tried looking up the original comics, but King Features has locked them all down. Damn them, DAMN THEM!

    Mary Worth has got some nappy ass hair.

    Is there any particular reason why the acting in this is so terrible?

      Lends credence to the idea that the videos are faithful adaptations of the comics. (Haven't seen the video yet, but still carry the mental scars of the comic as seen at a tender age.)

        watched it. that hurt my brain too.

        i'd say nothing (or less) was lost in the translation: while the strip is a slowly rotting waste of the mind, the video -- well, in the sense that it fully conveyed the measure of the strip, i'm tempted to say it's brilliant -- but, ouch.

  8. They need to do this with Funky Winkerbean.
